If you’ve always wanted to read a book about capybaras, I have great news for you! My owner wrote a book about me…sort of. It’s actually about three cats who try to capture a capybara that has gotten loose in their neighborhood. The lead cat’s name is Celeste so I didn’t even get top billing. And the capybara is actually name Caplynn and is a girl, so I’m not all that happy about that. But it is a book about capybaras and it is loosely based on me, there aren’t many capybaras who can even say that much. Continue reading “Book About Capys!” »
Caplin Rous 2007/07/10 - 2011/01/04
The photo above was taken on 2010/12/03, just one month before Caplin Rous died. He looks the picture of health, eating nice tasty, green grass just like a capybara should. Is this what killed him?

This adorable capybara named Rousabelle or Rousey for short (pronounced Rosy) was accidently let out of her yard by a delivery person. She is from Colliers, WV. If you live in the area, please keep an eye out for her or for any rumor that sounds like a capybara sighting. Rousey is tame but she may be frightened.
Please send call the number listed or me an email immediately if you have any information! email@example.com.
Me and Lisa chillaxin in the pool
I had a terrible weekend last weekend because of how sore I was after my latest dental procedure so I wasn’t sure if I was looking forward to this weekend or not. I had a lot of Capybara Ambassador duties to see to and I was thinking I would rather just sit in the pool by myself all day and sleep. Sleeping is the capybara equivalent of reading (or watching TV for those of you who don’t read).

She has a name
My new rabbit has a name! Thanks to all my fans for their help. The winning name is Dustabelle McLinty Poofball the 1st, suggested Jackie Hammond. That’s a pretty cute name but Winston Bumblebee Barcode the 1st said that there can be only one 1st and it is him. So we’ve decided to go with just Dustabelle. That’s a really cute name and it fits her really well. Plus it reminds us of little Rousabelle Capybara who is lost in the wilds of West Virginia and we are missing her and holding out hope for a safe return.

Getting in the car
After how good Garibaldi Rous has gotten about going on car rides, it’s a shame we had to take another long trip to the vet. After we’ve gone a certain distance, Gari seems to know what’s going on and gets very nervous. Poor little guy! But it’s either go to the vet or die. I’m not sure which he would do if he had a choice but, luckily, I am deciding for him. Continue reading “Garibaldi is Sick: Vet Visit 5” »
Is that really a rabbit?
After Maple WoMER disappeared, Oakley Bunny looked so sad and lonely. So Melly said, when the time was right, that we would get a new bunny to keep Oakley company. And then she brought home THIS from BlogPaws! Is that a rabbit? It looks like an old man having a bad hair day! But no, Melly swears she is a rabbit. She’s some sort of weird cross between a mini-lop and something called a lion head. Frankenstein’s rabbit. Continue reading “Name That Rabbit!” »
Here we go again!
It’s not easy being a Capybara Ambassador (in training). It’s not all tweeting and posting cute photos. Some of it involves actual, inperson (incapybara?) interaction…with children! I’m not saying I’m scared of children or anything, after all, they’re just baby humans, but there is something a little intimidating about them. Maybe it’s how active they are. Or how noisy. Or that there are always a lot of them. But it’s an important part of my job so I do it willingly, even if I do shake a little and sweat a lot. Continue reading “School Visit: Reilly Elementary” »
